Then there is Julia Fox. Like an oracle lit in paparazzi flash, the It girl-turned-actress stepped into the style spotlight early in the year, wearing a series of confounding outfits: a gray motorcycle jacket
with matching pantashoes (spandex shoe–legging hybrids), a lower-than-low rise latex leggings, and a Canadian tuxedo with chaotic, black eyeshadow that delivered endless memes and Halloween costume inspo. With her downtown cool demeanor, unapologetic style, and unfiltered TikTok persona, Fox made 2022 her own. Armed with torso-bearing crop tops, corseted mini dresses, and subversive cut-outs
, she secured appearances on the Tommy Hilfiger runway during New York Fashion Week and at the CFDA Awards, as well as a devoted fashion following, including New York-based designer Elena Velez
, who heralded Fox for her “zero fucks given” style.
